There is great potential in artistic shifts, whether it’s when we alter our subject, our approach, or even our medium. But during a time when the world appears to shift each day, how do we maintain a fresh practice without feeling overwhelmed? Should we follow suit and embrace the shift or stay dedicated to a practice we’ve always been developing?
Organized by artist and PAFA staff member Matt Herzog, this artist-centric group conversation will be driven by weekly themes, featured guest artists, and the needs of our maker community in order to engage fellow artists also tackling the challenges of managing a creative at-home practice.
As artists, we are powerful models for creative and critical thinking. Although we are not new to periods of isolation or reflective thought, COVID-19 has radically changed our routines and put our adaptive skills to the test. Many of us feel the importance of community, connection, and conversation even more now that we are forced into separation.
